Pepperdine University values the spiritual heritage that gave it birth and that has nurtured it for nearly seven decades. All academic catalogs affirm: "Pepperdine University is religiously affiliated with the Churches of Christ, of which Mr. Pepperdine was a lifelong member."

The Office of Church Relations exists to strengthen the historic spiritual ties between Pepperdine and the Churches of Christ, and to continue to build new bridges of partnership with this vibrant church constituency.
